Attorney General Tom Miller
Attorney General of Iowa
Attorney General Tom Miller is serving in his ninth four-year term as Attorney General of Iowa. Tom Miller grew up in Dubuque, where his father was the long-time county assessor and an inspiration for Tom’s early interest in public service. He graduated from Wahlert High School in 1962 and Loras College in 1966, and received his law degree from Harvard Law School in 1969. Mr. Miller has earned a reputation for integrity, high quality legal work, and strong work on behalf of ordinary Iowans.
Attorney General Miller is known for his long-time fight on behalf of kids and taxpayers with his campaign to reduce the enormous death toll and financial costs of tobacco addiction and disease. He was a leader in the multistate settlement agreement that resulted in the tobacco industry paying billions of dollars to the states and changing the way it conducts business. Now Attorney General Miller is working to reduce youth addiction and the thousands of Iowans who die every year from tobacco-related disease.
Mr. Miller has a long record of achieving results through cooperation with other state attorneys general and with local, state and federal officials, regardless of their political affiliation. He has served as President of the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG) and received NAAG’s Wyman Award as the attorney general who contributed most to NAAG and its members. He has chaired several NAAG committees and led major multistate working groups working on tobacco issues, antitrust enforcement, agriculture, and consumer protection.
“I consider it my duty and my privilege to be the people’s lawyer,” Attorney General Miller says. “I am deeply grateful for being able to serve as Attorney General of Iowa.”
